Music Festival Sommelo

The Sommelo Music Festival  was organised as a summer folk music festival in its current form for the first time in 2006. This was based on folk music research, which had been carried out in Kuhmo since the late 1990s. The aim was to turn the expertise and understanding accumulated through research projects into live music. At the same time, the audience would also have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the different forms of folk music through both research and concert experiences.
